Can someone please help me with a a script for watchlist that will show me stocks that have gaped up yesterday and gaped up again today or same thing with gap down yesterday and gap down again today? So 2 days in a row gap in the same direction. I would really appreciate it. I have no clue how to write script for TOS so if anyone can help with a custom script I would really appreciate it.

@Big Ed Should be able to do this using the candlestick patterns that's already available in ToS.

I dont think you understand what i'm asking for. I need a script for watchlist that will show me stocks that have 2 days of gap ups or 2 days of gap downs. I can't go through thousands of stocks checking for candlesticks patterns. The script should be able to pull those from scanning
 
@Big Ed Copy and save it as a study and scan.
copy and save what? I'm not understanding you. What candlestick patterns are you talking about? is that a name of a study or something? Im looking for a script. I know there's a watchlist for gap up.. I want a watchlist for gap up 2 days in a row for example of gap down 2 days in a row

In TOS right hand side next to studies ( where you add your studies to the chart) there is a button called pattern where you can define custom patter you are looking for and save that as a study and then use that study as scanner code to scan for the patter you are looking for. This should get you started:
